Elite (SPA) Imported Mare Diva -Donnerhall/Garduelan II/Perser XX
Before being imported to the U.S in 2006 Diva received her 1a rating and a state premium award. She passed her mare performance test at Hoya where she received all 7s and an 8 on her jumping. (see video below)
Diva is a very special mare and we feel very privileged to own her. She is a product of Kareen Heineking-Schutte's German Horse Connection, an outstanding breeding farm in Germany . Diva is half sister to Riemaars Stradivari (SPA) BC finalist Don Aqui as well as SPS Farfadet, SPS Alliage and many others. I have compiled a little more information on some of these special horses.
Half brother, Don Aqui by Don Bosco
Don Aqui was licensed at Verden main licensing. He passed his 30 day test in Zweibrücken scoring two 9s on his jumping and then achieved permanent breeding approval by successfully participating in Bundeschampionat at Warendorf where he was a finalist in the 5yo eventer division. He went on placing himself in the young jumper division up to L-level . Unfortunately his performance career was cut short by a fractured coffin bone.
He now stands in Scotland where he is approved for Hanoverian, Rheinland, Westfalen and British Hanoverian studbooks.
Sire of multiple winners and champions in dressage,eventing and jumpers in U.K, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg and more.
